Methadone and Expecting

Brittany - posted on 11/20/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hello! I am new to Circle of Moms and I am looking for a place that offers support from other moms and moms to be. I am expected to deliver March 23rd 2016 to a so far healthy baby boy. My boyfriend and I are very excited, however, both nervous about the effects my current intake of methadone will have on our baby. From what I am told I am on a low dosage, and the hospital is aware of my medication..and they are skilled and knowledgeable in the care for infants coming off of methadone..however I am worried about our baby being in the hospital for a long time, and his comfort level. I was working my way off of it when I found out I was pregnant, then they told me to stay on until I give birth then start to re-work my way off the methadone. I also plan to breastfeed. Any one else been through this and have advice?
